Shout out to the homie Jerneye, who just dropped his latest video ‘8 Immortal.’

Jern says “I know it’s been a minute since my last release, but it gives me great pleasure to share my latest single & video “8 Immortal”, and to announce I’ve been back in the studio working on my next album entitled “Invisible Visible”… I chose “8 Immortal” as the first single purely for it’s energy and vibe… To me this is one of those joints that really capture the essence of what I love most about Hip-Hop…”

By: JABAone


The homies Scatter Brain [Masters of the Universe] and V-Rock are no newbies to the scene. Scatter Brain has a long history of eatin fools on the battle scene, putting his name on the line. [as you can see… he is STILL Scatter Brain…]

The duo come back with a BRAND NEW music video heater ‘CRIMINAL MINDED’. Peep it out, leave a comment, ‘LIKE’ the video, and support my dudes. Plus check out more at Scatter Brain’s website, www.activepsycho.com and on Twitter @_SCATTERBRAIN_ and on V-Rock’s site www.v-rock.bandcamp.com and Twitter @DJ_VROCK

Umm... .:Jan 17 11:.


Umm... So driving today, I pulled up behind this truck with a sticker that read "Powered by Mexican"... Umm... OK... GREAT!  But shouldnt it have said "Powered by A Mexican" [SINGULAR] or "Powered by Mexicans" [PLURAL] or even "Powered by Mexico"? Maybe it would have been better if it said "Mexican powered"?  This did not sit right with me.

 

Its like those racer dumbasses who drive their Honda with a "Powered by Honda" sticker?  WELL DUHHHHH!!!  Hey dipshit, If you wanna impress me and let me know theres something WORTH BRAGGING ABOUT under the hood, then there BETTER be something WORTH BRAGGING ABOUT.  Something like "Powered by HAMSTERS".  Now THAT would be sticker worthy, no doubt! 

 

Back to my Mexican brotha here... Dont trip Im all about being down for yours... but if youre going to represent your people, AT LEAST make sure youre doing it INTELLIGENTLY.  I beg you!Photobucket

 

By the way... BIG shout to this cat for rockin that "BAD BOY CLUB" sticker on the STRENGTH!  I guess everyone needs to feel like they belong and apparently... this guy belongs to the BAD BOY CLUB!  Thanks for taking me back to 1985... LIFES A BEACH HOMIE!!!
